It was a bit fiddly to do, it has proper darts just like you'd get in a human pattern and the skirt was a bit awkward as I didn't really have enough fabric so had to make up my own pattern for it. But altogether I think it looks adorable. I got the pattern, inspiration and the tutorial from here . I think this dress suits this doll, I was going to dress her in quite modern style clothes, now I think she is going to look good in the 1950s style.
Now what shall I make next, I'll check out websites with 1950s fashions and see what I can come up with.
